Hono™ AVB Controller

The Hono AVB Controller is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) application intended for use with AudioScience products combined with other 3rd party AVB devices. The controller provides configuration and routing of IEEE 1722 audio stream formats using the IEEE 1722.1 AVDECC protocol. It supports AudioScience AVB devices with IEEE 1722.1 dynamic stream mappings, allowing individual channels to be selected from incoming streams and routed to outgoing streams.

Hono AVB Controller is built upon the foundation of avdecc-lib, an open source AVB controller library. Avdecc-lib is part of the AVnu OpenAVB effort, an open source project for AVnu software, drivers and building blocks.

The Controller runs on Windows 7 and 10, 32/64bit and Apple macOS Sierra and High Sierra
